About The Show

Joe Biden may seal his fate in the first 100 days, when his mandate is strongest, and he makes the early decisions that will shape our country’s future. In season two of Rubicon, Crooked Media’s Editor in Chief Brian Beutler will chronicle the dawn of the Biden era and assess the administration’s most consequential decisions based on the expectations Biden has set for himself and the ones we’ve set for him. This window of opportunity is crucial for all presidents and that’s never been more true than in the wake of the disastrous Trump administration. Each week, we’ll walk you through the latest developments, explain their importance, and analyze whether or not they meet the urgency of the moment. New episodes every Friday.
